  Climb onto a bicycle and pedal to a string of attractions on a one-day tour around Luang Namtha Town. A 30-km program presents the area’s highlights for independent cyclers, as do guided tours that add value with in-depth explanations of the sites and during village visits.

Head northeast of town, and cross the Nam Tha Bridge to reach Ban Nam Dee and the short trail to the ethnic Lanten village’s waterfall and swimming hole. Some tours stop for lunch, and visitors can partake in everyday activities, watch villagers make bamboo-pulp paper (November-March), and purchase handicrafts.

  Return to Route 3 and head south for 5 km to the Tai Yuan village of Vieng Neua and its community house. Pre-book a visit at the Tourist Information Center for baci ceremonies, cultural performances, cooking classes, and meals.

Continue south and turn right at the airport entrance for the uphill climb to That Poum Phouk Stupa. Built in 1628 to demarcate the Lane Xang and Lanna Kingdoms, the original stupa was bombed in 1966, and a new one was built next to the ruins in 2003.

Stop at nearby Ban Nam Ngaen to watch Tai Dam villagers distil lao khao rice alcohol, and neighboring Tai Daeng and Tai Khao villagers weave patterned fabrics on two-level looms. After descending the hill, continue south on Route 3, and then turn left at the “Boat Landing” sign. Venture through farmland to Ban Nam Thoung before turning north on Route 13B for the 7-km pedal back to town.
